Bay Area artist, Donna McGinnis paints abstract paintings that are about exploration and refinement. She explores materials, artistic elements and a state of mind including memories and dreams. The paintings are started without a preconceived idea and they develop on their own by suggesting their direction as she works. It is the ambiguity and surprise that she enjoys. It is the process of painting that is important, a journey, and a timeless interlude.
